The Cave Home of French Designer Alexandre de Betak

You Know Him Even Though You Think Not.
Alexandre de Betak, furniture and fashion designer,
has long been choreographing and producing
the Victoria Secret runway shows 

The 44-year-old Alexandre and father of two told Trendland
that he spent 10 years turning his dream to live in a modern-day "cave" into a reality.
His amazing, one-of-a-kind domicile resides in the coastal village in the Tramuntana region 
of Majorca. 

 
Albeit quite splendid, the peaceful allure of the pool area above doesn't look much like a cave, does it? No . . . but how about this:

Movie time with friends and family in this cozy yet cavernous space. 
Loving all the billowy pillows. Smooth architectural lines and the arched ceiling create more of a cave-like setting, don't you think?

De Betak told Trendland that ancient dwellings inspired him to design and build a home that celebrated the land, its offerings and the unpredictable twists and turns you might find within a cave. No sharp corners or rigid separation walls allowed in this house. He and his family live in what he calls a rustic and eco-friendly construction. 

He also was interviewed by the New York Times. To read that interview and see the photos they posted, go here.

perhaps jumping for joy that they get to spend time in such a cool place?

How incredible. Love the pebble floor and the scuptural walls. It feels very artisanal, built by hand. No wonder they look so happy!

This is absolutely amazing..I swear I could live in that movie room alone, in fact I might never come out, just give me lifttime of popcorn (with butter of course) and I am good! Just fabulous!

Love the kitchen and pool...just worry about guests or ME tripping on the stone...it IS cool though.
